Dessert Sushi and Gilmore Girls

Many hours of my teenage years were spent watching Gilmore Girls. Some may say this was escapism or procrastination from school work but I argue that I was simply furthering my education. Where else would I learn about the effects of excessive coffee consumption? Not to mention the fact that everyone has a different path in life and it isn’t always an easy one. It’s been 9 years since the last Gilmore Girls series ended […]

Healthy Banana Pancakes

It’s certainly going to be an exciting couple of months for me! This week I arrived back home to graduate from university (hooray!!!) and will be heading off on holiday to Europe at the end of the month. It’s definitely going to feel weird not being a student anymore but I’m sure that I’ll be back studying more in the years to come. As you can imagine it’s been a pretty hectic month trying to […]

Scones and Lemon Curd

scones and curd

  The Great British Bake Off is back so to celebrate I thought I would whip up some scones. They ARE the classic English afternoon tea treat after all. These scones are extra special as they’re dairy free and accompanied by an equally dairy free lemon curd. What a pairing! My Aunty Maeve is a baking genius and when I visited her in Ireland she baked up a dairy free storm for me. These scones […]

Coconut Rum Balls (Vegan)

The classic rum ball – Honestly not something I ever thought I would be writing about. Up until a month ago I had never even tasted one. Sure, I was aware of their existence but had dismissed it as something my grandparents would eat. The rum ball was not for me! However, recently my co-worker brought a batch in for our celebratory ‘Friday bake day’ and oh my gosh they were wonderful! No longer will […]

Creamy Pumpkin Soup (Vegan)

Pumpkin soup

  Gee, it’s certainly getting chilly here in Melbourne and as I bundle up to avoid the chill a need for comfort food grows. Instead of reaching for another slice of pizza (not that there’s anything wrong with that) I decided to whip up a batch of pumpkin soup. I’ve never been a huge fan of soup but this particular soup is so creamy, filling and comforting- it’s hard to dislike! It’s topped off with […]

Taxi Driver Apple Pie (Vegan)

Ahh apple pie, it’s the ideal winter comfort food in my opinion. Clearly Travis from Taxi Driver must think so too. The Scorsese exhibition has just opened at The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) so of course I had to see it! It was absolutely amazing and if you head over to the Many Melbournes blog you can read my review! As I was exiting the exhibition I dropped by the gift shop […]

Vegan Easter Chocolate Crackle

Chocolate crackles were one of my favourite treats as a child. Once in awhile I was treated to a box of Rice Krispies and I would rejoice over the knowledge that I could make a massive amount of chocolate crackles. They were simple and fun to make and most importantly- they were super delicious. However back in the day (and maybe still today) they were made using Copha and with a large amount of sugar. […]
